When news came that LIS2 would not follow Max, Chloe or Rachel, I was completely lost as to how to gt my LIS  fix. Nothing I've seen before compares to the quality of this, nor the emotions it can provoke. It is more than obvious that you guys spent a lot of time creating this, and I really appreciate it. If you continue to work, set up a patreon because I would certainly support y'all for bringing me this, and  I'm sure others would love to, too.


Oh my god. This is such a beautiful game; I've only played Kate and Rachel's routes so far, but it is just so stunning. The choices are so deeply impactful and the slight shifts in how the plot plays out based on your differing choices are wonderful. Rachel's route was so, so beautiful. You have managed to capture these characters in all they are absolutely brilliantly. Kudos to you for making such an incredible game. Thank you for sharing such an amazing piece of art. 


Thank you so much! We had an amazing team who poured their heart into it :)

Can I translate this game to polish language? I can also show this game on my YouTube channel :D


wish for more options other than cis-female


I really loved playing this game, Max & Chloe forever!

Also made a video for it:

Awesome! Thank you so much.


I love this! You managed to capture the characters and general atmosphere of LIS really well. The routes are real fun to play and believable and the dialogue is both entertaining and emotional. The art is beautiful and also fits the LIS art style. The achievements and gallery are a fun bonus, too. Sorry for rambling, I just really think you did a great job! ^^


Thank you so much <3


i LOVE this so much it's so great!!!!! aaaaa all of the routes are just wonderful and i love them all <3 (chloe's my favorite personally but i also really like victoria's route!) 

Thank you so much! <3




Love the art style some one has amazing skills to depict the characters from Life Is Strange. Although I don't remember the teacher being a hot dog hahahaha.

After you extract it with Winrar, you should see an application called LoveIsStrange-FULL.exe. Just double click that!
